CPS 201. Professional Development. (1)

Professional Development is a preparation course for students who are planning to engage in a co-op/internship or work experience that is directly or indirectly related to their academic major or minor. Over the six week period, students will learn how to write a professional, competitive resume and cover letter, create an online professional social media presence, develop professional interviewing strategies and expertise as it relates directly to the job search process and their academic major as well as assess and reflect on personal attitudes to foster success in the professional work environment. The course would also be very appropriate for students who are graduating or approaching graduation.
